U.N. Development Programme (UNDP) Liberia, in collaboration with the Press Union of Liberia (PUL), will September 28 host its first “Social Good Summit” in Monrovia to discuss how technology was used to collect and share Ebola-related data.
The Social Good Summit in Liberia will also be used as an opportunity for experts to expand on Liberia’s domestication of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Common Africa Position.
Participants are drawn from the government, media, communities, as well as academic and technical institutions.
A UNDP release issued in Monrovia Wednesday indicated that Dr. Mosoka Fallah, Lead Investigator for Ebola Data Research, will lead a panel on technology and public health during the summit slated to take place at the West Point Administration Building.
The release said during the peak of the Ebola crisis, Dr. Fallah was one of the few people who ventured in the West Point alleys when the outbreak appeared to have been spreading exponentially with nearly not enough treatment unit beds to meet demand.
